Is she a black black racist for not being anti-whites and treating whites as equals?

Apple Diversity Chief Forced Out After Saying White Men Can Also Be 'Diverse'

That’s right: Young, who is – for the record – a black woman, has been forced out of Apple because her views on diversity were too inclusive.

Supertroll, you could be correct that Macron will be isolated, and vulnerable on home soil.

He was elected by the "anyone but Le Pen" coalition. His record on Green Issues is very good, if you are a Green. French politicians do not stand up to their own people demonstrating against them.

Germany is not about to GERMEXIT, but may decide whether its future is Green. If Germany rejects Green, Macron's coalition will be as stable as a Hockey Stick.

If PM May has made an offer to the EU, the EU should accept it. The EU's bargaining position is not going to improve, if BREXIT and Merkel's Green EU policies are linked.

Who would have thought that Greens could destroy Europe by triggering a German election?

Golfcharlie but does it raise Macron's position within the EU or isolate him more? He is considered more hardline with regard to giving Britain an easy exit. I wonder if his position might have been weakened.

I think it raises Macron's position within the EU, but reduces the EU's bargaining power with the UK.

If the German Greens were the stumbling block to Merkel forming a coalition, then attitudes towards German Greens will become part of the political debate in the run up to a fresh election.

As EU Green policies are closely aligned with those of the German Greens, whilst Germany burns more coal as the "dirty man of the EU", this could be like opening a can of worms as the chickens come home to roost - an unprecedented feeding frenzy, with many casualties.

With no French Nuclear, or Russian Gas, where will German Power come from, without their own cheap reliable coal?

That would constitute a breakdown in the space/time continuum that would need an atomic powered sonic screwdriver to fix.

tomo, the embarrassing thing is that both The Stern Report and Climate Change Act originated within the UK. Both have been used for the Progressive's destruction of the developed world, rather than helping the developing world to develop.

The Green delusions that have sabotaged the EU and USA economies will be blamed on the home of the Industrial Revolution. Greens are very proud of this.

Greens are toxic to politicians, politicians who realise this, can now be proud of what they have prevented.

Merkel has achieved a lot for Germany, but her legacy will be stained by Greens.

With German politics diverted internally, how will this affect the EU position regarding Brexit? Will it strengthen the French stance or will Germany wish to get this whole matter settled quickly and be more accommodating?

Gwen "If the entire population of China jumped off the Isle of Wight at the same time" there would be a temporal paradox and the Isle of White would move forward into the 1990s.

pfff... it must have been some 5+ years back when somebody noticed that some bit of climate related (iirc) German legislation that had been drafted and pored over by politicians and the executive branch was actually at odds with / contrary to long established laws of physics - the matter looked like it it could lead to considerable embarrassment of politicians / lawyers and senior managers.... (what's not to like?) - I'd love to know how they fudged that - since it went away.....

It's not like they weren't told that Energiewende was a mirage - the pols chose overt and increasingly ridiculous displays of piety over engineering and economic reality. Not paying attention, domestic posing and shin kicking is what landed VW in their present mess - it looks like a large part of German politics also suffers from the same ignorant, myopic malaise.

If the entire population of China jumped off the Isle of Wight at the same time, would it cause isostatic rebound, a triple high tide in the Solent, and damage Southampton's Geothermal?
